Saint John’s Foundation Funds at Work… Lee Engineering has begun work on the grading of the property for better drainage. Hopefully this will: 1) prevent water from flooding the basement and damaging the HVAC units again, 2) prevent water seepage into the Bevan Building that regularly floods the janitor’s closet and has damaged the door and walls, and 3) prevent standing water from collecting under the curate’s house, creating an unhealthy situation. It is also the first step of a long-range plan to rebuild the children’s play area and develop the back property.

Funds from the Foundation have also allowed us to have Mitchell Hall repainted this past week. Come and take a look!
